A question I get asked often is: sure you sketch well Josh, but how do you shade the skin? I’ve had alot of practice shading skin since I used to do traditional pencil portraits for fun as a teen. Now I want to break down what I have learned into a few simple steps!
In this video, I sit down with you and explain every stroke that I make in order to shade this face. I explain the different choices I make since the model has darker skin tone, and go over everything in a way that can apply to both digital and traditional art!
So get your sketchbooks or tablets and give it a try yourself!
